   I was there living on Tarawa Terrace going through Supply Officer school over at Montford Point Oct 77-March 78 and back with HQ Bn 2nd FSSG all of 1987-1989. We lived out in Jacksonville instead of on base for that tour but still applies. We get the flyers from the Corps periodically. I guess I should reply. At least then maybe the VA would accept me into their medical program which they so far have refused as they say my income exceeds the threshold they can accept.

WV Saw, my wife was a Marine there in the 70's and when she first applied for medical without the camp Lejeune she was denied just as you were, told that she had to much income, then on one of our visits to VA site in Roseburg, Or we found out about the camp water problems so she put together a history of here different medical issues from that time forward to 2019. we took that to Roseburg and they sent it in, after a couple of letters asking for more info she was accepted into the medical . We did have a local VFW advocate help with the original paperwork. Just have to keep trying when they stall or reject. unexpegtedly, Wife was given a 30% disability and $$$ which was a surprise as she was only after the medical, was well worth the effort, especially as we get older with more health issues.

    Yeah, we will see what they say. I don't recognize having any of the ailments described. I wonder if it caused hair loss and weight gain? :D
